WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala

Last night designers a few celebs helped WWD celebrate it’s 100 Anniversary in New York City last night.

Designers Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen arrived in matching black ensembles which predictably took over their petite frames.

They also did that pose where they look joint at the hip. *will never get these girls*

Jessica Szohr added a touch of animal magic to her look by livening up her black jumpsuit with Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

Georgina Chapman was a perfect vision – as always – wearing a Marchesa Fall 2010 dress which makes her look like she’s floating on a very stylish cloud.

Mary-Kate Olsen For Marie Claire US September 2010

Mary-Kate Olsen appears on 3 covers for the Marie Claire US September 2010 issue.

I’m not a fan of multiple covers, because the cover I want is never available in my newsagent.

My favourite is the Pucci cover. Mostly because of the stunning dress, but also because she’s teasing us with a rare smile.

On the other covers which – were shot by Tesh MK wears a military Burberry Prorsum coat and a sequined Gucci dress with feathered sleeves.

The young designer talks to Marie Claire about talks about her fast-paced lifestyle, running a fashion house in New York City, The Row, her passion for clothing, losing her friend Heath Ledger and how she feels about having been a child actor.

You can read more at MarieClaire.com. Here are some extracts.

On loving her fashion lines: “It’s kind of like a mask to hide behind.”Read More…

The Art of Elysium “Bright Lights” with Versus – Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen brought their own unique style to The Art of Elysium “Bright Lights” with Versus fundraiser on Friday.

I have to admit I kinda like what they are both wearing, which is very rare for me.

Mary-Kate opted for a blue micro mini Proenza Schouler dress with a leopard print cape and Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte ankle boots from the Spring 2010 collection.

The heels are distinctive by the nut bolt heel, the metal toe cap and platform.

A selection of ethnic style bracelets complete the look.

Ashley wore a black lace dress with grey panels with a chocolate brown leather jacket tied to her waist.

She completed her look with Balenciaga heels.

Otarian Restaurant Grand Opening – Mary-Kate Olsen In Dries Van Noten

Mary Kate Olsen was spotted at the grand opening celebration of “Otarian: The Planet Most Sustainable Restaurant”.

The actress/fashion designer arrived at the Bleecker Street eatery in New York City sporting a very casual look jeans and a black shirt.

I may not have looked at her twice has she not worn this green Dries Van Noten Spring 2010 floral print jacket.

The jacket is gorgeous.

I’m not usually a fan of Mary-Kate’s shabby chic, but I don’t hate this look.

For once she doesn’t look like she was dragged out of bed.

“Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway Opening Night – Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen

This weekend Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen attended the “Lend Me A Tenor” Broadway opening night in New York.

I’m sorry, but I struggle to take these two seriously as fashion icons.

I’ve never understood the appeal, and I don’t think I ever will with all due respect to them and their fans.

Despite Easter being all about Spring whites and fluffy bunnies the twins looked like they were on their way to a Tim Burton convention.

Although Mary-Kate tried to break-up her black gothic glam head-to-toe look with a white Proenza Schouler clutch, this look is still too dark for my liking – although Ashley dress with the bows is cute.

The biggest question is why did they need to wear those ridiculously big sunglasses at night?

30.03.10 In Her Closet

In Mary-Kate Olsen’s Closet – Celine Boston Tote

I’ve been toting around my Alexander Wang Coco Duffel bag for the past few months like Kristin Cavallari, but it’s time for a change.

The problem is but I can’t seem to find a bag in taupe or beige that I like for the summer.

As always I’ve been looking to celebs for inspiration and I’ve found myself lusting after Ashley Tisdale’s Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ satchel in beige, but most recently l’ve found myself loving Mary-Kate Olsen’s Celine Boston bag.

Yes it’s not quite the summery bag I’m looking for, but I do love a structured bag with plenty of compartments. It makes finding my oyster card and my blackberry so much easier.

This large tote is timeless and more importantly it’s great for carrying a lot of essentials.

Mary-Kate’s Celine Boston bag is available to purchases from Matches Fashion.

Runway To Sidewalk – Mary-Kate Olsen In Prabal Gurung

Petite Mary-Kate Olsen likes everything supersized, which is why she was spotted carrying two large bags as she was leaving her apartment recently.

One was a Balenciaga men’s duffle bag and the other a Proenza Schouler PS1 leather satchel.

The mini mogul can take the title of being the first to wear a look from Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2010 collection.

She wore a black and red drop shoulder cashmere wrap coat, but she opted out of styling her look like the runway.

She paired her look with Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe canvas boots.

Gurung wakes up this morning as a CFDA nominee for Womenswear.

Fingers crossed he takes home the prize on June 7.
